i have 2 clients that live in physically separate but close dwellings on the same property.
Client 1(PC) is hard wired to her router and client 2 had a PC and used client 1's wireless signal.
Client 2 bought an ipad and a Mac compatible wireless printer. Is there anyway client 2 can can keep using
the client 2 signal?
I understand the current router has to be changed because it isn't Mac (air) compatible, Is there a router
that sends an air signal that can also be hard wired to a PC? Any suggestions?
Thanks

I can't imagine why client 2 can't continue to use the wireless signal. Nothing in the Mac vs Windows situation has anything to do with the type of wireless signal being picked up (except for experience that shows MacBook Air's don't have as sensitive an antenna as some computers).

Wireless networking doesn't care about Windows or Mac, it is a standard networking method.  All wireless routers that I know of also have wired ports on the back.  It is unlikely that the router needs to be changed.  The iPad and the wireless printer just need to get IP addresses from the router the same way the PC did.
